Location: Medan Selera, Kampung Baru, Jalan Ketari, 28700 Bentong, Pahang, Malaysia

Intro: MyCen Directions' Ramadan Bazaar Series documents and celebrates the many colourful bazaars of the annual fasting month (Bulan Puasa). Food appears to be an unifying factor as more and more people of different race and religion are seen mingling and shopping for food together at these places.

The sheer variety of mouth-watering delicacies, its cross-cultural appeal and the carnival-like atmosphere make this an unique Malaysian institution. Also known as 'Bazar Ramadan' or 'Pasar Juadah', the makeshift stalls usually open from around 4 pm to 7 pm daily, with many traders breaking fast on location.

Directions:
On the Karak Highway, exit to Bentong and drive for about 5.8 km towards Bentong town. The bazaar site is on the car park of the Kg Baru Medan Selera, on your right.

Info / Notes: Almost every vendor at this bazaar waves a fly swatter, out of habit I think. Bentong is relatively clean and tidy, actually. It is also quite scenic as it is surrounded by misty hills and jungles. Further up in town, is another Ramadan bazaar located at Dataran Bentong, near the Bentong General Hospital.

Bentong also serves as the take-off point for vehicles traveling to Raub, Kuala Lipis, Gunung Tahan and Kota Baharu (in Kelantan) through the mountainous Pahang heartland. The once prosperous timber town of Bentong is locally pronounced as "Mun Toong" in Cantonese and "Boon Tong" in Hokkien.
